    Initiation of chromosome replication controls both division and replication cycles in E. coli through a double-adder mechanism

    Guillaume Witz et al.
    Single-cell measurements combined with a new statistical framework for discriminating between models of cell cycle regulation show that chromosome initiation controls the E. coli cell cycle via two adder mechanisms.

    A new class of disordered elements controls DNA replication through initiator self-assembly

    Matthew W Parker et al.
    DNA replication initiation proteins contain a disordered domain that impacts each stage of their function, from chromatin recruitment and initiator co-assembly to the subsequent displacement of the factors from chromatin.

    Nucleosomes influence multiple steps during replication initiation

    Ishara F Azmi et al.
    Nucleosomal DNAs assembled or modified by different chromatin remodeling enzymes differentially impact the origin licensing and helicase activation steps of replication initiation.

    The human origin recognition complex is essential for pre-RC assembly, mitosis, and maintenance of nuclear structure

    Hsiang-Chen Chou et al.
    The initiation of human genome replication requires the six-subunit origin recognition complex (ORC) and CDC6, with ORC playing additional roles during mitosis and in organization of the cell nucleus.

    Opposing roles for DNA replication initiator proteins ORC1 and CDC6 in control of Cyclin E gene transcription

    Manzar Hossain, Bruce Stillman
    Two related DNA replication initiation proteins contribute to the decision of whether to enter a new round of the cell division cycle or enter into a period of proliferative quiescence.

    A conserved MCM single-stranded DNA binding element is essential for replication initiation

    Clifford A Froelich et al.
    The crystal structure of the MCM helicase bound to single-stranded DNA reveals a binding motif that is critical for cell viability, helicase activation and DNA replication.

    CpG and UpA dinucleotides in both coding and non-coding regions of echovirus 7 inhibit replication initiation post-entry

    Jelke Jan Fros et al.
    RNA virus replication is attenuated by an intrinsic restriction mechanism after introducing CpG/UpA dinucleotides into both non-translated and coding regions of viral genomes, which may be exploited in the design of attenuated virus vaccines.

    A conserved Mcm4 motif is required for Mcm2-7 double-hexamer formation and origin DNA unwinding

    Kanokwan Champasa et al.
    Analysis of an essential motif in Mcm4 provides insights into replicative helicase double-hexamer formation and the first step requiring this intermediate during replication initiation.

    Mechanism for priming DNA synthesis by yeast DNA Polymerase α

    Rajika L Perera et al.
    The details of how the enzyme DNA polymerase α initiates the polymerization of nucleotides in DNA replication, a critical step in the synthesis of new chromosomal DNA, have been revealed in atomic detail.

    DNA binding polarity, dimerization, and ATPase ring remodeling in the CMG helicase of the eukaryotic replisome

    Alessandro Costa et al.
    The Mcm2-7 motor unwinds DNA using an approach distinct from that of superfamily III helicases, and accesses multiple ring configurations and assembly states during the initiation of DNA replication.
